  1. Who doesn't love sweet and savoury foods? Is there anyone on this planet who hates it? I highly doubt it! Of course, they're delicious and satisfy our taste buds like no other food. However, these cravings need to be managed if our fitness goals are of utmost importance. Especially the goal of weight/fat loss. Let's understand how we can manage these temporary cravings without messing up with our fitness goals! Situation – A Box Of Sweets/Chocolates: Before that, I would want you to imagine a situation where a box of sweets/chocolates is opened and placed in front of you. What will your immediate action be? If you're a fully functional human, you'll try to eat it. This is clear. However, the main question is - Will you: 1. Just eat 1-2 pieces and stop? 2. Eat the whole box Ask yourself this question and be honest about the answer. Okay, I'm Honest. What To Do Now? a) Just Eat 1-2 Pieces & Stop – Feed Your Cravings My recommendation for this would be to feed your cravings and have 1-2 pieces from the box. Adjust the calories of those pieces into your caloric budget of the day and roam guilt free. General guidelines – 2 pieces of chocolate contain 100 Kcals(calories). 1 piece of your favourite sweet contains around 150 kcals(calories). Congratulations, now you're a free man! Sweets/chocolates have less power over you. Eating 1-2 pieces of that chocolate will make you happy and increase your chances of sticking to the nutrition plan. Your fitness goals won't be affected now. b) Eat The Whole Box – Throw The Box Away! Fortunately and unfortunately, the above approach won't work for you. You need to take a stricter approach of handling this situation. Why? Because your fitness goals are at stake! You will do best if you restrict the intake of those sweets. For you, cravings can increase if you try feeding them by eating 1-2 pieces. With time, staying away from sweets will have a beneficial impact on you. My recommendation for this case: - Do not buy these kind of foods at all - Skip the shopping space where these foods are kept - By any chance, if you have these at your home, keep them out of your reach - Hide them in boxes which are not transparent. You won't be able to see them! - Give them to the underprivileged kids. The smile on their faces will make your day! Eventually, you will be a free soul. In the coming days, these boxes of chocolate will have lesser power on you. You will save a lot of calories and hence, reach your fitness goals faster.

  2. The 2019 Pakistan Super League (PSL) ended on a high note when Quetta Gladiators successfully chased down Peshawar Zalmi's below average total of 138 runs in just 17.5 overs to claim their first ever title in the Twenty20 league's history. The Man of the Match award was given to Pakistan's Mohammad Hasnain who was able to snap three wickets while giving up 30 runs in his four overs. Quetta's Ahmed Shehzad led the team's batting order with his 58-on-51 delivery performance as former Aussie captain Shane Watson was dismissed early in the game with a run-out at the hands of Umar Amin. However, the highlight of the evening came after the match was over when, from the crowd of 32,000 cricket fanatics present at the National Stadium in Karachi, emerged an internationally familiar face of a different sport. During the closing ceremony of the 2019 PSL former FIFA World Cup winner and Barcelona FC captain Carles Puyol was brought to the stage followed by a collective roar of cheer coming from the stands. Legendary @Carles5puyol in action at NSK.#HBLPSL #KhelDeewanoKa pic.twitter.com/UbpZeQ9hjv — PakistanSuperLeague (@thePSLt20) March 17, 2019 Currently present in the city to promote World Soccer Star football games and the next FIFA World Cup in the country, Puyol said: “It's an amazing welcome, the people are very friendly. I'm very happy to be here.” “I thought Pakistanis only liked cricket but I have seen they like football a lot also and it made me happy,” continued the footballer in Spanish while addressing the capacity crowd. While the sporting fans of Pakistan were overjoyed with the presence of such a well known international figure in their stadium, not everyone on Twitter were able to believe their eyes. Lmao wtf is Carlos Puyol doing at the PSL Final in Karachi?!!! #MadRespectTho — ð»ðð¦ð (@daudthepaki) March 17, 2019 Carlos Puyol in Pakistan. All kinds of madness#PSL — Muneeb (@MuneebKhawar2) March 17, 2019 Wtf is puyol doing in PSL?𧠗 Prasad Suroshe (@PrasadSachinist) March 17, 2019 Why the hell is Puyol at the PSL's closing ceremony?! #PSLFinal — Fanatix (@fanatix63) March 17, 2019 The **** is Puyol doing in PSL? — Sameer (@Notacrickethack) March 17, 2019 We are really going to make Puyol watch the PSL final tomz.

  3. For someone who moved from Pakistan to Down Under at a young age, Usman Khawaja has undeniably come a long way to become a vital cog in the Australian set-up. Ever since becoming the first Muslim to play for the Aussies in the Sydney Test during 2011 Ashes series, the left-hander has managed to cement his position in the Australian side on the back of consistent performances. When it comes to his batting, the Australian batsman thrives on the composure and patience he has developed over the years to build his innings. And, that is not derived from the countless hours spent in the nets. In fact, Khawaja mastered the art of discipline - something that's a must for any sportsperson - through his stint at the University of New South Wales - School of Aviation. Yep, you read that right. The Australian cricketer is also a qualified pilot after getting both his degree and licence to fly airplanes. And, he put his flying skills to test by taking control of Airbus A380 - the world's largest passenger aircraft - recently. Watch as qualified pilot Usman Khawaja puts his flying skills to the test, taking control of the largest passenger aircraft in the world!@Uz_Khawaja | @Qantas pic.twitter.com/gg8MerqebM — cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) February 20, 2019 In a video shared on Twitter, the 32-year-old was seen handling himself quite expertly in the cockpit, his only blemish being a slightly rough landing. Confessing his love for flying, Khawaja said: "I travelled a lot as a kid. My dad worked in Saudi Arabia for about 5-6 years, so I use to travel back and forth to see them and then come back here to play cricket". guess this means they cant drop him for ashes because hes the one flying them over? — Blake Robinson (@Robbo_1990) February 20, 2019 "I just grew a fascination with planes. As I was coming towards the end, year 11-12, I thought 'what about flying'. I found UNSW (University of New South Wales - School of Aviation), which offered both a degree to make my mother happy and get my licence to get my wings," Khawaja said. Talking about how flying helped him in his cricketing endeavours, Khawaja revealed: "I think flying helped me a lot in terms of cricket. Probably the biggest way was discipline and keeping up with the learning, making sure you are on top of any changes that has happened. There are a lot of things that go hand in hand between flying and especially playing Test cricket. The discipline part of flying and discipline of being a sportsman, especially being a cricketer and being a batsman, I think there are a lot of similarities". Till flying simulator is fine but please don't give him real aircraft with passenger else be ready for Australian version of 9/11. — Abhishek Tripathi (@abhishekt2009) February 20, 2019 While many sportspersons are clueless about their choices post retirement, the Australian batsman seems to have that area covered pretty well. After acing the flying test, Khawaja will now have to back it up on the cricket field when Australia lock horns with India in two Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) and five One-Day Internationals (ODIs), slated to begin from 24th February.
  4. A chat show which is supposed to entertain the audience ended up leaving a bitter taste for all the fans of 'Koffee With Karan'. When Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul made their much hyped, much awaited appearance on KJo's show, fans were eager to see some bromance and hear some dressing room secrets of the men in blue. However, the comments and remarks made by cricketer Hardik Pandya were regarded as sexist, misogynistic and plain tasteless in nature. Hardik Pandya : When i lost my virginity, i told them, "Mai Aj kar kay aya ho" pic.twitter.com/6HfX0zRWHy — Thakur (@ThakurHassam) January 6, 2019 This is just an iota of the confidence that was shown by Hardik on the show which upset the viewers to a limit that only did BCCI had to take action against them and impose a ban, but the episode had to be pulled down as well. Amidst this wave of controversy, the host himself was mum for quite a while until recently when he opened up on the episode and issued his own apology for the same. Karan Johar breaks his silence for the 1st time post Hardik Pandya & KL Rahul controversy on his #KoffeeWithKaran show. Full interview #ComingUp only on ET NOW. Stay tuned! #Davos @karanjohar @SupriyaShrinate @hardikpandya7 @klrahul11 #WEF2019 @wef pic.twitter.com/HERG69Jq5r — ET NOW (@ETNOWlive) January 23, 2019 Karan clearly mentioned that he regrets what happened to the boys and justified that how anyone associated with the episode had nothing to complain about it but being a responsible person, he wanted to share his two cents on it. The controversy cost the boys a ban from the India-Australia series which they were initially supposed to play. Even though Hardik issued an apology on social media, people were actually done with his thoughts.
  5. One of the most neglected factors when it comes to making progress in terms of fitness that people ignore is stress. Many a times, people who struggle with their fitness goals are going through some sort of stress in their life. Most people make the mistake of ignoring this factor but once you start managing stress better, other things start falling into place more easily. How Stress Works © Pixabay Trying to make progress in your fitness levels while being chronically stressed is like pushing your motorbike to the place that you want to ride it to. You might reach there but it would be a hell lot harder than if you would have ridden it. The reason behind it is that your body's sympathetic nervous system is stuck in "on" mode. It's like your body's smoke alarm is constantly going off which basically makes it's very hard for you to focus on anything and it depletes your will as well. The Peace Killing Hormone Is Friends With Stress Being stressed also makes your body produce a hormone called cortisol which has been linked to triggering cravings for comfort foods and eventually, food binges. Stress also depletes the energy you use to exert self-control. For example, if you are having a bad day at the office and someone offers you a piece of cake, you'll find it a lot harder to not eat it. Our impulse control takes a hit when we feel distressed, so we look for ways to feel better and that piece of cake looks like a very good alternative. How To Tackle Stress 1) The first and the foremost thing that you should do is that you should admit that you are stressed out. Only then you will look for a remedy to your problem. 2) Once, that is out of the picture, you should scale back a little. May be cut down on the number of sessions you work out every week and start dedicating your time towards an activity that you enjoy doing. This will help alleviate the stress of trying to do too much at once. 3) If you are trying to lose weight and the weight on the scale is stuck, remember, weight is just a number. Giving it too much importance can be stressful. There are many more factors to consider when it comes to tracking “fat loss” like taking your measurement, taking photos of yourself regularly, and looking at how your clothes fit you, etc. © Thinkstock 4) You should also look at adding activities which can relax you mentally and physically like yoga and meditation. These activities only take a few minutes of your time rather than hours and can go a long way de-stressing you. Taking care of yourself and it does not only include fitness and nutrition, take up a hobby or do an activity that you like doing, as doing things that you like reduces stress and keeps you active which in turn helps you live a happy life along with a healthy one.

  7. It looks like newer Android devices could be exposed to a newly discovered vulnerability called the RAMpage. The exploit could theoretically work on any device with LPDDR memory, which includes virtually every smartphone released since 2012. Dubbed the RAMpage, the attack allows malicious applications to break out of their sandbox and access the entire operating system. This includes accessing the data stored by other applications, which the Android security model is meant to prevent. © Samsung “While apps are typically not permitted to read data from other apps, a malicious program can craft a rampage exploit to get administrative control and get hold of secrets stored in the device,” the researchers said on a website set up to present the attack. “This might include your passwords stored in a password manager or browser, your personal photos, emails, instant messages and even business-critical documents.” Android ION is a subsystem which manages how memory is allocated, specifically between apps and the operating system. RAMpage attacks the ION subsystem, eliminating the barrier between apps and the operating system, and provides the attacker full control over all data and the device. © YouTube The researchers tested their RAMpage proof-of-concept exploit successfully on an LG G4 device, but they believe that “every mobile device that is shipped with LPDDR2, LPDDR3, or LPDDR4 memory is potentially affected." In response, the researchers have created a defense mechanism dubbed GuardION that can block the exploit on mobile phones. You can patch your device with GuardION, but this isn't an easy task. The instructions are advanced and have only been tested on a Pixel running Android 7.1.1 Nougat with a specific kernel. © TechCrunh The RAMpage exploit is completely different from the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities, researchers said there's no resemblance between Meltdown/Spectre and RAMpage. This is because Meltdown and Spectre go after data stored inside CPU caches while RAMpage goes after data stored inside RAM cards. The research team behind RAMpage and GuardION comprises of Victor van der Veen, Herbert Bos and Kaveh Razavi from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam; Giovanni Vigna and Christopher Kruegel from UC Santa Barbara; Martina Lindorfer from TU Wien; Yanick Fratantonio from EURECOM and Harikrishnan Padmanabha Pillai from IBM.

  17. The company has faced a global outcry after a whistleblower said that data from millions of users was improperly harvested by consultancy Cambridge Analytica to target US and British voters in close-run elections Facebook Inc is giving users more control over their privacy by making data management easier and redesigning the settings menu, the company said on Wednesday, in the wake of a scandal over a breach that exposed the personal information of millions and was allegedly used by a political consultancy. The company also said it would propose in the coming weeks updates to the social media website?s terms of service and data policy to better spell out what information it collects and how it uses it. The company has faced a global outcry after a whistleblower said that data from millions of users was improperly harvested by consultancy Cambridge Analytica to target US and British voters in close-run elections. Facebook shares are down nearly 18 percent since March 16, when it first acknowledged that user data had been improperly channelled to Cambridge Analytica, eating away nearly $100 billion of the company?s market value. ?We?ve heard loud and clear that privacy settings and other important tools are too hard to find, and that we must do more to keep people informed,? Erin Egan, Facebook?s chief privacy officer, and Ashlie Beringer, its deputy general counsel, said in a statement. In addition to redesigning its settings menu on mobile devices, Facebook said it is creating a new privacy shortcut menu where users would be able to better secure their accounts and control personal information. It would also allow users to review and delete data they have shared, including posts and search queries. Users would be able to download the data shared with Facebook, including uploaded photos, contacts added to their account, and posts on timelines.
  18. Facebook is facing a lot of heat right now and the #deletefacebook movement is growing and obviously, there is the loss of asset value and money involved as well. As they say, tough times call for tougher measures, and it seems like Zuckerberg and his team are finally pulling up their socks. In a new development, Facebook has announced new security measures to protect user data. © Facebook “Last week showed how much more work we need to do to enforce our policies and help people understand how Facebook works and the choices they have over their data,” Vice President and chief privacy officer, Erin Egan was quoted as saying. In another statement, the deputy general counsel, Ashlie Beringer, said: “We've heard loud and clear that privacy settings and other important tools are too hard to find and that we must do more to keep people informed.” These are the 3 major changes in the pipeline, that allow users to be safeguarded: 1. Redesigning of the entire settings menu- The setting menu on mobile devices will undergo a major redesign. The new layout will have all setting options in one location, perfectly streamlined. Easier for the layman user as well to understand. 2. More control on your data- Controlling your data will be in your hands and you will be able to manage the information that will be seen in ads as well. 3. Downloading Facebook data- To initiate additional transparency, users will be able to download the data that is available in their name on Facebook. The 'access your information' will allow you to control all your posts and information about you. Facebook is very well aware that it is under the radar right now and there is no escaping the wrath this time. Let's hope these measures help Facebook in retaining the brand value that it is losing right now.
  19. The United States has added seven Pakistani companies to a list of foreign entities that have been said to be acting contrary to the national security interests of the US. The move is among the series of decisions aimed at restricting Pakistan?s economic activities as the country is among the 23 entities that would face stringent export control measures, which could prevent them from conducting international trade. According to some media reports, the additions could also affect Pakistan?s chances of joining the Nuclear Suppliers Group. Out of the seven Pakistani companies, three are listed for their alleged involvement in the proliferation of unsafeguarded nuclear activities that are contrary to the national security and/or foreign policy interests of the United States. Two are accused of procuring supplies for nuclear-related entities already on the list. Two others are said to have acted as fronts for listed entity. The 23 additions have been made to the Entity List of the Export Administration Regulations, which is managed by US Department of Commerce?s Bureau of Industry and Security. The other companies added to the list include one Singaporean affiliate of a Pakistani company and 15 others from South Sudan, published in the US Federal Register, which is equivalent to the Gazetteof Pakistan.
  20. People take part in a "March For Our Lives" demonstration demanding gun control in Seattle, Washington, US, March 24, 2018. REUTERS/Jason Redmond NEW YORK: The youth-led US gun control movement that flexed its public muscle with huge weekend rallies has already nudged Congress to enact minor firearms changes, but must remain active if it hopes to win more meaningful regulations, lawmakers said on Sunday. The movement that erupted after the Feb. 14 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, has generated a national conversation about gun rights and has chipped away at legislative gridlock on the issue, they said. ?The activism of these young people is actually changing the equation,? Senator Tim Kaine, a Virginia Democrat, said a day after hundreds of thousands of protesters rallied in Washington. Tucked into a $1.3-trillion spending bill Congress passed last week were modest improvements to background checks for gun sales and an end to a ban on the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention studying the causes of gun violence. ?These are two things we could not have done in the past,? Kaine said on CNN?s State of the Union program. ?But the active engagement by young people convinced Congress we better do something.? The spending bill, which President Donald Trump signed on Friday, also includes grants to help schools prevent gun violence. The Trump administration also took a step on Friday to ban the sale of bump stocks ? devices that enable semi-automatic weapons to fire like machine guns ? that helped gunman Stephen Paddock massacre 58 people in Las Vegas in October. A key focus of Saturday?s march on Washington, which was duplicated in 800 cities across the country and around the world, was an effort to turn emotion into political activism by registering participants to vote. Americans will vote in November on the entire US House of Representatives and one-third of the Senate. Gun control advocates have called for universal background checks on people buying guns, bans on assault-style rifles such as the one used to kill 17 students and staff in Parkland, and large-capacity ammunition magazines. Senator Mark Warner, another Virginia Democrat, declared in the wake of the student-led movement that he would now support bans on such rifles and magazines, which he had voted against in recent years. ?I think it?s time to change our positions and re-examine them,? Warner said on the CBS News ?Face the Nation? program. ?I think this time it?s going different,? Warner said. ?I think we can actually get it done.? To win significant changes, lawmakers said the young gun control advocates need to maintain their drive in the face of powerful pro-gun lobbying by the National Rifle Association and those who see gun ownership as a right protected by the US Constitution. ?If they don?t keep it up, those that want no change will just sit on their hands,? Ohio Governor John Kasich, a Republican who formerly served in Congress, said on CNN. Two Republican senators, Marco Rubio of Florida and Joni Ernst of Iowa, said over the weekend that while they supported gun control advocates? right to protest, they opposed infringing on the constitutional right to bear arms. Meanwhile, former Pennsylvania Republican Senator Rick Santorum drew an angry response on social media for saying on CNN that, instead of agitating for change, students should ?do something about maybe taking CPR classes? or take other training to respond to school shooters.

Photo: Reuters AFRIN: Turkey?s military and its Syrian militant allies have taken full control of northwest Syria?s Afrin region, a Turkish army source said on Saturday, as aid workers distributed food to people in the area. Turkish forces and the Syrian fighters swept into the main Afrin town last Sunday after an eight-week campaign to drive out the Kurdish YPG militia, which Ankara regards as a terrorist group. A military source told Reuters the last remaining villages had been seized and control established overnight. ?Control has been completely achieved in the Afrin region and search operations are continuing so that local people can return safely to their houses,? the source said. State-run Anadolu news agency carried a similar report. In Afrin, people queued to receive hot food which was being distributed by the Turkish Red Crescent while Turkish soldiers kept security and armored vehicles moved along the streets. ?We are trying to bring back life to normal in the short and medium term here.? the aid group?s president Kerem Kinik told Reuters. ?Our mobile kitchens are here, and our crews are in the villages.? ?We want everything to be alright. We want our women and children to come back. They could not come back to their homeland,? said Afrin resident Abdurrahman Nahsen Suleymanoglu. Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan rejected criticism of the Afrin campaign in a phone call with French President Emmanuel Macron on Friday, according to a Turkish presidential source. Among Turkey?s Western allies, France has been one of the biggest critics of the Turkish military operation, with its foreign minister saying concerns for its border security did not justify the incursion.
  22. Students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida -- where 17 people were shot dead on February 14 by a 19-year-old former classmate -- have been the driving force behind the march WASHINGTON: Galvanised by a massacre at a Florida high school, hundreds of thousands of Americans are expected to take to the streets in cities across the United States on Saturday in the biggest protest for gun control in a generation. The student-organised "March For Our Lives" is to feature rallies from coast to coast, with the main event scheduled to take place in Washington within sight of the US Capitol. "The kids are leading the movement," said Democratic Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut, where 20 children aged six and seven years old were killed in December 2012 at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida -- where 17 people were shot dead on February 14 by a 19-year-old former classmate -- have been the driving force behind the march. With a mixture of outrage and passion, they have been relentlessly badgering US lawmakers to enact a ban on assault rifles and to expand background checks to cover all gun purchases, even private sales. "The march is just the start," said Aalayah Eastmond, a 17-year-old junior who took shelter beneath the body of a classmate during the Stoneman Douglas shooting. "Columbine happened -- nothing´s changed. Sandy Hook happened -- nothing´s changed. Parkland happened -- nothing´s changed," Eastmond said. "We will fight for this until change happens," she said at an event with members of US Congress. Since the Parkland shooting, the state of Florida and the US Congress have made only modest tweaks to gun laws and President Donald Trump´s proposal to arm teachers has been met with widespread resistance. Organizers say more than 800 marches are being held across the country and around the world under the slogan #NeverAgain, with the Washington event alone anticipated to attract at least 500,000 people. The protests are expected to be the largest for gun control in the United States -- which has more than 30,000 gun-related deaths a year -- since the Million Mom March in May 2000. ´Electoral force´ The appeals for stricter gun regulations have drawn the backing of Democratic lawmakers, and a slew of American celebrities have pledged $500,000 donations to support the protests. They include actor George Clooney and his wife, Amal, a human rights lawyer; actress and media mogul Oprah Winfrey and director Steven Spielberg and his actress wife, Kate Capshaw. Performing at the rally in Washington are Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Platt, Ariana Grande, Jennifer Hudson, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Common, Andra Day and Vic Mensa. The marchers have also attracted the support of former president Barack Obama, who tried but failed to reform gun laws following the Sandy Hook slaughter. Obama and his wife, Michelle, released a letter to the "Students of Parkland" praising their "resilience, resolve and solidarity" and saying they have helped "awaken the conscience of the nation." Former president Billl Clinton said America "owes its gratitude to the students of Stoneman Douglas and their peers across the country who have joined their cause." Murphy, the Connecticut senator, told AFP the student-led movement needs to become an "electoral force, and this march may be the beginning of that." Conscious of their growing political power, March For Our Lives organizers provided a link on their website for supporters to register to vote. They have also called on supporters to vote against lawmakers who receive money from the National Rifle Association, the powerful US gun lobby that fiercely defends the Second Amendment´s "right to bear arms." "Either you stand with the kids or you stand with the NRA," said David Hogg, a Stoneman Douglas student. Meanwhile, Lyft, the ride-hailing service, said it would offer free rides to 50 marches around the United States. Several restaurants in Washington said they would hand out free lunches to high school students. Robert Kraft, the owner of the New England Patriots, sent the American football team´s plane to Parkland to fly the families of the 17 people killed at Stoneman Douglas to Washington along with injured students. According to a Quinnipiac University poll, 63 percent of American voters approve of the march in support of tougher gun laws but are not optimistic it will lead to new legislation.
  23. We all might die soon, yay! And, if that happens, we'll have to blame – or thank – China. An out of control Chinese Space Station carrying 'highly toxic' chemicals could hit earth in just a few short days. China's first prototype station, Tiangong-1, has been out of service since all control over it was lost in 2016, but is now reported to be hurtling back to earth. The 8.5 tonnes Space Station contains quite a bit of hydrazine, which is basically rocket fuel. Since it is traveling parallel to the equator at the most northern and southern points of its orbit, there is a high chance of it crashing into cities like New York, Barcelona, Beijing, Chicago, Istanbul, Rome, and Toronto. © China Manned Space Engineering Office While talking to MailOnline, Dr. Hugh Lewis, a senior lecturer in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Southampton said, “The spacecraft is traveling around a more or less circular orbit, which is tipped with respect to the equator at 43 degrees. If you plot this path on a map of the Earth, it produces a sine wave pattern, with the slower curve of the wave in northern and southern latitudes and the faster straighter sections running from east to west.” He went on, “We can't say precisely where, as we don't know which orbit it will come in on. At this point in time, it's very difficult to say. If you take how far in advance you make your prediction, the rule of thumb for error is around 10 percent. At the moment, that's roughly 10 days or 160 possible orbits. If we were to predict again with a week to go, this would narrow to less than one day or 16 possible orbits. My expectation is, what little of the craft survives the atmosphere, will impact the ocean.” © Twitter Okay, I take back the 'we're going to die' thing because apparently no one has ever been harmed by space debris coming back to earth. Also, 10-40 percent of the satellite is expected to survive this re-entry.
  24. When I started my working out, I had little to no idea about how to go with either my workout or my diet. Anyway, I still made it a point to hit the gym. Just like most dudes, I always thought that workout would take care of fitness needs. But I was wrong and after a couple of months in, I figured that my diet needed attention. Though I had worked with a dietician in the past, I didn't see any credible results. This is when I got in touch with Shantanu Prasher, Editor for Health at MensXP. He broke down the fundamentals of fat loss and building muscle and made me familiar with how a physique transformation is achieved. He made it very clear that things that would come next wouldn't really be easy and needed discipline. I was put on a calculated diet and a structured training program. I learned the importance of calculating food and maintaining a sound sleeping pattern. He worked from ground up on my physique and more than anything, we chased strength. This is how my program was divided- 1) Upon starting, we worked on leaning out first to get rid of the skinny fat state I was stuck in. Lifting progressively heavy while in a caloric deficit is what I did. Focus on strength was of prime importance here. 2) After the above re-composition, I was now primed for starting my bulk. My calories climbed up week by week along with the weights I was lifting in the gym. Focus on strength was of prime importance here as well. 3) The workouts were tied mostly around the big basic lifts like squats, deadlifts, lunges and OHP. The aim was to get stronger every week. In under eight months of training, I've realized that a fitness regime is not just about a before and after transformation picture. It is a lifestyle. It makes you mentally and physically strong. It helped me 'adult' mentally in a short span of time. How you'd ask? Besides changing my diets and workout plans according to my progress with Shantanu, what was the biggest effort at my end was to figure the time to actually work out and prepare my meals. Apart from 45 minutes of workout and 15 minutes of warm up and psot workout stretching, what came new to me was walking. I quit driving to my gym and started walking instead. All in all this took me at least 2 hours a day and in the lifestyle of a millennial, this IS a huge task! This is brief look at my day- 1. Scheduling my day. 2. Putting alarms for every meal. 3. Waking up early to cook the meals and count my calories. 4. Sleeping early so I can wake up early and recover well. 5. Reaching work on time so I can leave early 6. Reaching the gym on time so I could meet my friends / family later. If this isn't adulting, I wonder what is! Bringing a certain balance between what u need and what exactly are your priorities. Helps you get your life on track, keeps you away from negativity and almost acts as therapy for all your stress. If you wonder what happened to my social life then I'll keep it real. Your social lifestyle does come in the way of regular training and diet (read: the weddings, the birthdays and festivals) but once you've put your body in the habit of a certain routine, training, 2-3 days of outings in a month won't change anything. The biggest struggle is to start and take that one big step~
